The macula is a tiny and highly sensitive central part of the retina responsible for detailed central vision. It is constantly subjected to exposure free radicals from sunlight and other environmental factors. With time, the macula may degenerate, leading to impared vision, even blindness. To prevent macular degeneration eat food containing lots of antioxidants and beta carotene. Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago studied the diets of about 3,000 elderlies and discovered that eating a mere carrot a day, or any other beta carotene-rich fruit or vegetable, cut the odds of macular degeneration by 40%.
